I have an Apple TV 1 with BCHD15 and Crystalbuntu 2, as well, and I'm calling BS on those claims :)
Its right in front of me right now and I can tell you that it either shows a blank screen or shows artifacts with Hi10P content.

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Add-on:YouTube]] = Add-on:YouTube, [[Adding videos to the library]] = Adding videos to the library, [[userdata]] = userdata, etc

When I was with CB1 my ATV wont play 10bit, it used to show a black screen, but when I updated to CB2, SUDDENDLY it start to play 10bit content...
Can I upload an anime episode ["Ben-To", episode 01, 10 bits, 720p, 167MB ] ?
Or can you upload the file you want in 10 bits? And I record my ATV playing?
Why my ATV play 10 bit content? I dont know.
This is the BCHD card that I have, from this EXACTLY seller.
eBay BCHD Link
If you want I can also run tests, post logs, etc...
EDIT: add info.
I got the last episode from ARROW, and had encoded into 10 bits myself.
x264 64bit 10bit-depth encoder from 'x264.nl'
And used this settings on '.bat' file:
" x264-10 --preset veryslow --tune animation --crf 18 -o %1.[10bits].mkv %1 "
and my ATV played fine, this time without frame skips [ I think it is because of the resolution, 480p w/o frame skips, 720p with some...]
Tested another file, this time with a soap-opera from Brazil [Flor do Caribe] encoded with the same settings.
[Samsung RF511-SD7 + W7 Home Premium x64]
[Apple TV + BCHD v15 + Crystalbuntu 2.0 + 50'' LG Plasma]
[HP N40L + 4x 3TB + W7 Ultimate x64]
Does my knowledge helped you? +1 on my reputation!
